Abstract : Duvall, Manvi, and Lowell have shown a close relationship between a continuum theory of shock-structures in solids and that of one-dimensional lattices. Extending their results, it was shown that the thermodynamical behaviors of shock-structures are equivalent to those of the dissipative autonomous system described by the generalized Lienard equation. The theory assumes the adiabatic conditions and the relaxational transformation of instantaneous work into the equilibrium internal energy. (Author)
